Afghan International Council

a collective voice for Afghanistan and its people, echoing their needs and wishes

As part of our aims we work in collaboration with a wide range of Afghan and non-Afghan organisations, institutions, experts, academics, activists and businesses to promote peace and community cohesion and to share knowledge and resources.

This separate website page is dedicated to promote wider recognition, appreciation, communication and cooperation with a direct link to Afghanistan and the wider world.

If you are interested to connect with us, advertise any aspects of your work or join any live collaborative projects please contact us .

The need for a united voice to honour the silence of the majority of Afghans, both inside and outside Afghanistan, has always been the missing piece in a constructive platform for peace, development and state building in Afghanistan.

The Afghan International Council (AIC) was therefore initiated in August 2019 by Afghan Academy International to create a space to bring people together and inspire collective work from around the globe to better support the wellbeing and needs of the people of Afghanistan. AIC aims to promote cooperation and facilitate cohesion amongst organisations, institutions, experts, academics, activists and businesses, as well as to share knowledge and resources. The Council hopes to operate as a think tank for issues concerning Afghanistan, specifically in relation to peace, stability, unity, pluralism, tolerance and cultural nourishment.

By joining this initiative, partner members remain independent, but gain the support of AIC for their existing structures and activities. In keeping with its objectives, AIC considers the following as its main initial functions:

  • Recognition
  • Appreciation
  • Communication
  • Co-operation
  • Networking
  • Annual Meeting
  • Establishing and working towards humanitarian and support mechanisms for those in need

The Afghan International Council’s most crucial goals are to begin a dialogue, build bridges and share expertise collectively for the benefit of all Afghans around the world.
